Pelion High School Reviews

I have had a great experience at Pelion High, I like the fact that the school is in a small town and there is only a small amount of people so you get more one on one time with the teachers. If I could change anything about the school it would definitely be the lunches!
Review Pelion High School
Pelion High is such a great environment, friendly teachers and staff, great students, and great curriculum. This was a great high school to attend and I enjoyed every minute of being there. To top off my experience i was in the colorguard and marching band for five years and that was the best school program I've ever participated in. If i could change something it would be to give the marching band more credit they bust their butts to perform and they work so hard.
Small town but nice facilities. Parents are very involved. I have developed very good relationships with my teachers, several of whom are having a great impact on my life.
